I am a home veteran since 4 yrs back. I commonly cook my own simple vege food at home daily - i.e. noodle make by flour + dried mushroom, commonly. I lately find out that consume too much of white flour isn't a good practise for diet as it may lead to diabetic and a lot of other illness.<br><br><br><br>
I search and read from a few sites which give me very contratic answers. Some listed it on the top of the pyramid food dietary diagram (especially those from US site) which shouldn't be consumed too much whilst other listed it at the most bottom in the diagram (especially those site from vegetarian) meaning that it is ok to consume everyday?! May someone pls confirm.<br><br><br><br>
The reason I make my own noodle because I don't like rice. The noodle I make is fresh, fast and simple. Due to my taxing working time, I can't go to hypermarket very often and neither I can store a lot of fresh food.<br><br><br><br>
Any suggestion from vegetarians out there what is the best food I can store for daily consumption?<br><br><br><br>
Many thanks!

The most simple solution would be to start buying whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I cut white flour out of my diet a few months back and have felt great since doing it. Whole wheat flour is very good for you, white flour is like eating paste.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and some other things you might want to try in place of the pasta - Quinoa (very healthy and tastes great!), cous cous, bulgur wheat, wheat berries, etc. Just experiment with different grains until you find some you like.

Seems to me that the reason why you have seen such contradictory information is because you're not differentiating between refined flour and whole flour. Refined foods are basically unhealthy and whole foods are basically healthy. Flour itself is not the problem here- the problem is that it's refined. Almost all your grains should be whole and grains should make up a large part of your diet.
